Hair Today Gone Tomorrow


The wax Ricey campaign culminates in our hero visiting Comfort Zone in Hethersett to have his head shaved and his body waxed. Our photographs show James losing his hair not to mention his shirt in a good cause.

It was a case of hair today and gone tomorrow when 19-year-old James Rice from Hethersett visited local beauty salon Comfort Zone. 

For James was having his head shaved and his entire body waxed to raise money for the East Anglia’s Children’s Hospices (EACH) charity. 

After his “ordeal” James was seen around the village sporting a woollen hat to keep out the cold prior to his return to Bedford University where he is studying Physical Education. 

It is likely that the Wax Ricey campaign will have raised a few hundred pounds for the charity although many of the donations are still to be collected. 

Ricey, who also plays football for Hethersett Athletic, expressed himself well pleased with the outcome of his “beauty session.” 

“I always say that there’s no gain without pain. It wasn’t as bad as I expected and I’m hoping that my few hours feeling uncomfortable will help the children in some small way,” said James who hit upon the idea of a New Year smooth look following a conversation in the pub before Christmas. 

“I am very grateful to Comfort Zone who gave their time and expertise free of charge to help my charity appeal,” he said.

Ricey Waxes for A Good Cause

A Hethersett resident will be enjoying a smooth new look in the New Year as he raises money for children’s hospices. 

James Rice, who is currently studying for a degree in physical education at Bedford University and who plays football for the Hethersett Athletic Club, will be having his entire body waxed and shaved early in January to raise money for the East Anglia’s Children’s Hospices (EACH) charity. 

The Wax Ricey campaign has been gathering pace over the past few weeks with people pledging money via a web site on which James explains the reasons behind going bald for charity. 

“It all started as a joke in the pub. Once I agreed to it I have become quite excited about the prospect of having all my hair removed apart from my eyebrows. Having visited the Norfolk hospice at Quidenham I am certain that the money I raise will make a difference. It is a very good cause,” he said. 

An actual time and date for the event has still to be sorted out but it will be before James returns to university on January 9th
